4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

A very comfortable hotel. Small, but well appointed. We stayed on a tour and were very satisfied. The breakfast was tasty, with good variety. Free wifi in our room was also a good plus. The neighborhood is very nice, with good restaurants and services. Beautiful park right outside the door with ancient olive trees. A good solid choice.

The hotel is located at a very nice neighborhood, within a walking distance there is a small pond. There are few restaurants around if you do not want to dine inside of the hotel. The buffet breakfast is very good with many kinds of fruit and fresh juice. The room is very spacious with a very good quality of wifi.... More

My husband and I traveled with a tour group and our first night in Lima was at the Sonesta. We found the room to be very comfortable; enjoying a king size bed with cozy sheets and pillows as well as a large bathroom, free Wi Fi, and a flat screen TV. The complimentary buffet breakfast offered a large selection and... More

The staff at this hotel is terrible and very rude. They gave me the wrong room which I had booked. The hotel feels like a Holiday Inn because of the small lobby and breakfast is pretty basic. The rooms don't feel clean and are not in very good condition. The hotel has a pretty good location but nothing else is... More
